Table Bay takes his place in the Selangor Cup

Table Bay, so impressive in the Grade 3 Drakenstein Vet Clinic Cape Classic at the end of last month, will take his chance in the Selangor Cup over 1600m at Kenilworth on Saturday

19 November after all. Derek Brugman, racing manager for Markus Jooste’s Mayfair Speculators team, said at the weekend: “It probably fits in with his programme of Cape Guineas and Investec Cape Derby to go for the Selangor.” Joey Ramsden has dominated recent runnings of this Grade 2, winning it four times in the last five years.

This premier trial for the Cape Guineas is run on level weight terms and so Edict Of Nantes, beaten more than five lengths into third in the Cape Classic, is a kilo worse off while fourth-placed Our Mate Art is set to meet the latest Ramsden star on 5kg worse terms.

Mike de Kock has whittled his nominations down to the highly regarded Australian-bred Al Fahad.

The Non-Black Type Lanzerac Ready To Run Stakes over 1400m on the same card is worth five times as much to the winner and heading the 18 declared – only 16 can run – is last season’s Tsogo Sun Gold Medallion winner Always In Charge who showed a fine turn of foot when returning to the racecourse last week. He has the advantage of a good No 4 draw and Anton Marcus will fly down for the ride.

The Vaughan Marshall-trained colt is rated 2kg clear of the next best, the Justin Snaith-trained Sergeant Hardy and Anthony Delpech has been booked. However, this one starts from pen No 12. Snaith has five runners (including a reserve) and the next best according to the handicappers is Zodiac Ruler who won the Grade 2 Golden Horseshoe at Greyville on Vodacom Durban July day.
